Our football match prediction:
New England Revolution did not kick off the new MLS campaign in style, with the team suffering a 1-0 loss to Colorado Rapids at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park. The Revs aim to bounce back from the defeat and they are likely to fight tooth and nail in Saturday’s football game against Orlando City. Seeing that New England recorded a win in each of their last four home games in the Major League Soccer, we predict that they will emerge triumphant in their second game of the new season. Thanks to Cyle Larin’s goal Orlando City recorded a hard-fought 1-0 win over New York City in the opening match of the season, but beating the Revs on the road is easier said than done. The Lions were more than fortunate to beat Patrick Vieira’s team in front of home fans and that is the main reason why away win should not be considered this time out.
